    The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather have stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stick-up men who've spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system.

    PERHAPS I AM GETTING SENILE AS WELL AS OLD, BUT I DO NOT REMEMBER LUCUS DAVENPORT AS SUCH A DUMB POTTYMOUTH. THE STORY WAS AN INTERESTING ONE AND I ENJOYED THAT ASPECT OF IT BUT I DID NOT ENJOY THE FILTHY LANGUAGE SPOKEN EVERY OTHER WORD. IS THAT WHAT THE "WICKED" STANDS FOR IN THE TITLE?

    This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

    That fact has nothing to do with the book. I loved the book. It took a little while to get into it, I think the audio had something to do with that, but after I got into it I couldn't stop.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg and/or Scott Brick?

    SCOTT BRICK IS ALWAYS VERY GOOD.


    What was most disappointing about Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg ’s story?

    THE BOOK WAS PREDICTABLE AND TRITE, ALSO, I DON'T THINK THEY MISSED A SINGLE CLICHE WE HAD NOT ALREADY HEARD PREVIOUSLY.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    MR. BRICK WAS GREAT AS USUAL.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Heist?

    YIKES, WHAT IS THERE TO SAY! THE PLOT WAS WEAK TO BEGIN WITH, AND THE FEMALE HEROINE CAME OVER AS A HUMOURLESS TWIT......WHO CAN SHOOT GOOD. AFTER THAT THERE WAS NO GETTING OFF THE RUNWAY.


    Any additional comments?

    "Racist Rubbish"
    Overall

    I was floored by the vitriolic anti catholicism, the inaccurate made up history. His writting is insulting and disrespectful of Pope Pius and Pope John Paul as well as Catholics in general. He paints an insulting picture of the Jewish nation as well. the one star is for the reader John Lee.

    Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (of the Bones novels and hit TV show), is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage "sci-philes" who live on a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever.

    I was disappointed that it was a book about teens. Interesting but predictible story.

    Virgil's always been known for having a somewhat active, er, social life, but he's probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort.

    Ruby says: "Extraordinary Plot Twists"
    "DISAPPOINTING"
    Overall

    WHY DO NONE OF THE REVIEWS MENTION THE CRUDE, VULGAR, AND RAUNCHY SEX-CAPADES? I LOVE THE ADVENTURES OF VIRGIL AND HAVE ENJOYED LISTENING TO ALL OF THEM...EXCEPT THIS ONE, IT WAS NOT WORTHY OF HIM. I ALMOST CHUCKED IT SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE LISTENING, WHICH HAS ONLY HAPPENED ONCE IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS. I EVEN LIKED STEIG LARSON AND THOSE STORIES WERE A BIT RACEY FOR ME! YEP, I'M A LITTLE OLD LADY FROM FLORIDA WITH A LOT OF CATS, HOWEVER TACKY IS TACKY! MR. SANDFORD CAN DO BETTER THEN THAT.

    In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton thought her stay at the remote, ramshackle Arcane House, far from society's prying eyes, would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment. She was there to photograph the relics and artifacts collected by a highly secretive organization, founded two centuries earlier by an eccentric alchemist.

    Susan says: "Great storyline, too!!"
    "YUCK"
    Overall

    MY FIRST TIME WITH THIS AUTHOR, I DIDN'T LAST MORE THEN A 1/2 HR. PROBABLY IS JUST ME, BUT IT WAS THE LEVEL OF A TRITE HIGH SCHOOL ROMANCE NOVEL. NOT MY CUP OF TEA. CAN I GET A REFUND?
